2. Eddie Nketiah

As a Hale End graduate, it will be an emotional farewell if Eddie Nketiah were to leave the club. After all, he has come up with some great moments for the club, most notably when he scored late on to beat Manchester United last season.

But, truth be told, there isn't much going for Eddie Nketiah, so I feel like a move would benefit all parties. Nketiah has been an excellent backup option for Mikel Arteta, who prefers Gabriel Jesus. To call a player of Nketiah's abilities an "excellent backup" feels like an insult to him, since he would walk into a lot of Premier League teams.

Nketiah should be a first-team regular at his age and while he could certainly do a job coming off the bench, it seems to be an eye-roll moment on the rare occasion he's in the starting eleven ahead of Gabriel Jesus.

Furthermore, with reports linking Arsenal with a big move for a new striker, this would only worsen Nketiah's case. A sale of Nketiah to bring in a new and more prolific striker would benefit all parties.

Having already spoken out a few times about his lack of game time under Mikel Arteta, it wouldn't surprise me if Nketiah was sold in the next transfer window. After all, Arsenal should strike while the iron's hot and cash in on the 24-year-old, whose market value has never been higher.
